Barbara Stanwyck in Baby Face (1933)

She has such amazing outfits in this movie. I especially like the first one, with the bow and square collar trim.

Ahhh! I need to see this! I can tell that I’m going to be on a Barbara Stanwyck kick after watching The Lady Eve.

Barbara Stanwyck & her favorite self-help manual in Babyface (1933, dir. Alfred E. Green)
“For decades, “Baby Face” — the 1933 film starring Barbara Stanwyck — has been pre-Code 101. If you want to turn someone onto pre-censorship movies at their most fun, sleazy and outrageous, just take them to “Baby Face,” and from there they’ll be inspired to explore the whole era. “If you’ve never seen Stanwyck in a pre-Code film, you’ve never really seen Stanwyck. Never in her later career, including “Double Indemnity,” was she ever as hard-boiled as she was in the early 1930s. She had a wonderful quality of being both incredibly cool and yet blazingly passionate. Her cynicism was profound, and then, without warning, she would explode into shrieking, sobbing, saliva-spraying hurt and rage. What an indelible, one-of-a-kind talent.”
-excerpted from Mick LaSalle’s review of the restored version of Babyface, which features additional scenes that were cut to get it past the censor boards
The uncut version of the film can be seen online here.

Babyface is *awesome*

Saw it this week. Couldn’t help but notice how amazing Babyface’s clothes are. And guess what that means. It’s this week’s Friday Film.
A classic Pre-Code film starring the lovely Barbara Stanwyck as she seemingly follows Nietszche’s philosophy, and “sleeps her way to the top”. Watch the uncut version, which wasn’t released until 2004.
